    The current mood of popnutoz at www.imood.com


    From the 4th to the 7th of March, Myself, Amira, Hannie, Nadee as well as Mena had a short getaway to Phuket Thailand! It was our first getaway together without our parents interfering and telling us what we can or can't do. Freedom baby! I don't know about the rest of them but I was definitely looking forward to this!

    DAY ONE!

    At the airport..saying our goodbyes and stuff.

    Dragged our sleepy asses to the airport! I packed my luggage the night before. Trust me to feel so paranoid for thinking that I might have forgotten to bring a lot of stuff. Oh and my ipod chose the perfect day to stop functioning but it's okay, I brought Bobo, my macbook anyway and that was my source of entertainment throughout the entire flight, playing Bejewelled. Hee!

    On our way to the hotel!

    Upon our arrival at Phuket Airport, we were bombarded with a lot of Taxi Drivers. Maybe they got the wrong impression that we were Madonna or even Spice Girls. I now know how Victoria feels after a flight. Jet lag!

    Our hotel! Hate their service but it's location makes it so convenient to go everywhere!

    And we finally settled on a taxi driver who drove us to Aspery Hotel, our home for the next few days! We made no hesitation and dumped our luggage in one corner and off we go shopping! And made a booking to Phi Phi Island for some snorkelling and beach fun! So cheap! S$40 only!

    Sawadikaaaa...Kabhuka? Probably the only two thai words I've learnt throughout.

    Shopping around the hotel - Cheap, Cheap, Cheap! And not to forget, it was SCORCHING HOT down there! The heat was INSANE. I was melting and yelling for mercy. We walked a long stretch of shops (about 2 MRT stations-ish) and arrived at Junyceleon Shopping Mall!

    Late lunch at Burger King! Oishi! The fries tasted gross though. Some weird salty taste. But the burger - delicious!

    Burger King! The taste of freedom never tasted this delicious!

    Over at the mall, it was insane. I bought a lot of stuff - not for myself though - for my sexy and cool friends back in SG! (I never forget about you guys k!) And nothing for myself. But we pampered ourselves with a body massage and mani-pedicure!

    What I'll do just to go there again and shop!

    Then it was back to the hotel, headed to 7-Eleven first though to buy some snacks and cup noodles and then some late night gossip at the hotel till we finally call it a night! Have I mentioned how milky their Milo taste like over there? Sweet and milky - Just the way I like my Milo.

    DAY TWO!

    Having breakfast! Mena & Hannie rented a bike though!

    We woke up bright and early! Refreshed ourselves because today was the day we were supposed to go to PHI PHI ISLAND! However, something happened that cannot be mentioned in this blog, resulting in the postponing of the trip to the following day.

    Patong Beach. The view is just so breathtaking!

    We decided to go to Patong Beach, one of the must see places to go to in Phuket, for a sun-tanning session since it was just a stone throw away from our hotel. Girls were in their bikini and I was in um.. yeah. Haha!

    There were naked cougars down there. Plenty of them! Burnt cougars! Disgusting sight. I couldn't help but to look away cos it was too disgusting. LOL.

    The water is so clean. I could practically live inside the water there without worrying that I'll get caught up in plastics of whatsoever! The water is so blue!

     Sun-tanning in the hot hot sun! Refreshing!

    The weather was perfect. Sun-tanning was perfect. I just closed my eyes and did not think about anything at all. It was so peaceful and I would not mind doing it again, not for the fact I got badly burnt despite the fact I put a lot of sun block to protect myself from the sun!

    Central Festival Mall! They have a MU shop there!

    Then it was back to the hotel to wash up before heading out again to our next stop, The Central Festival mall! This was where I bought the Manchester United fan collectibles for my parents and also Wonder Girls' EP albums! All cheap cheap!

    Inside the Tuk-Tuk! It's like a small taxi but it's not air-conditioned.

    This was when we realised the night market wasn't open at all. And it was only open on weekends. What a bummer! That meant that we had to push our shopping trip the next day too! After Phi Phi Island!

    Oishi! I'm hungry now just thinking about the food.

    Had dinner at this Halal Seafood restaurant nearby our hotel. Delicious! Afterwards, MORE SHOPPING! I didn't buy much this time round since I was saving up for the night market the following day and plus, I have already spent a lot the previous day.


    Phi Phi Island here we come! We went to three destinations though. Kai Beach, Maya Beach & Phi Phi Island. I really felt like I was on Survivor! So exciting! We took more photos using our waterproof camera. I'll update another post with those photos next time!

    One of our views from the boat!

    Waiting for our turn to board the boat!

    Ee-ye-oh-wee-yo-we-yo-whee-ahhh. -Cue survivor opening song-

    Mogo Mogo Tribe! Feeling like Survivor Castaways!

    This point of time we were feeling so depressed cos the water just went inside our bags and well.. you know what happened next.

    Survivors! Get on the boat! We're heading to Tribal Council!

    I'm LOL-ing to myself right now. Yeap we managed to get a Polaroid of Nadee sleeping. So unglam!

    Phi Phi Island! Could have done shopping there but I didn't bring any money.

    Just so you know, I almost died from Snorkelling. Biggest mistake was to jump into the deep ocean and I couldn't breathe since all the water went inside my mouth from my snorkelling tool. Omg. But the fishes are so pretty omg. And I have never seen such clear water in my entire life!

    Shopping at the night market! We went looking for food first to fill our tummies. Then we saw ladies in tudungs. Looked like a normal makcik! Amira asked, "Can I talk to her in Malay?" Lol. I tried calling, "Makcik! Cik Cik!" Nope, she didn't respond to me. Although it was very very weird to talk to the makcik and then she replys in Thai to you.

    I swear if you were desperate for food and you saw them, you'd just talk to these Makcik penguins in Malay. LOL.

    I tried PADTHAI, something like Mee Goreng here in Singapore and it was so effin delicious! Wow. I'd kill to eat that again! Spicy and sweet - Just the way I like it!

    MmMMmmmmm. PadThai!

    The night market was a shopping haven! I bought A LOT of stuff! T-shirts, accessories, bags, watches and even makeup (not for myself la. haha!)! It's those kind of street shopping you'd normally see around Bugis and I bargained like hell! And if the uncle didn't let us have our way, we'd just walk off and then they'll confirm call us back, "Okay can!" without any hesitation. Always works like a charm baby. I love bargaining.

    We went back to the hotel quite late though. Exhausted from shopping, but we wanted to finish all our money and made one last round of shopping along the row of shops outside our hotel, the same one that we went on our first day!


    Once we woke up, it was chaos! We woke up late! And everyone was panicking. I was particularly annoyed because we didn't get to have the breakfast at the hotel.

    Waited for the stupid cab. Feels like The Amazing Race, rushing for time!

    And we didn't have a taxi. This is the problem when you leave everything at the last minute. Haha! We walked out of the hotel looking for a taxi and waited for quite a bit till we finally got one. The taxi uncle was having his own private party inside the cab. He was blasting those clubbing songs popular in Thailand, even Dragonsta Din Tei! Numa Numa eh! Numa Numa Numa eh! I zonked out. Totally not in the mood. But great to have such an energetic uncle to start our day. Haha.

    Back in SG! Home sweet home!

    Phuket, you have been such an amazing getaway! A perfect place for me to run away from all the designing projects I had at that point of time in the office. It was great! Now's the next question, where to next? Heehee! Hong Kong? Bangkok? I can't wait!

    P.s I wanna thank my beloved sister because without her, I wouldn't have even gone on the trip at all. She paid for my airfare, my food, my accommodation, almost everything! I could never ask for more and I'm thankful for everything she's done for me! Thank you Amira!
